This Was A New Building When The Picture Was Taken
It was built in 1897 and was designed in the Queen Anne style by the architect Frederick Wheeler FRIBA who had offices in Horsham. It is now the home of the Nat West bank. The bandstand has been moved slightly to the right.
An engraving above the main door, now a cash point area, reads: Erected 1897 the 60th year of the reign of Queen Victoria.
